So what. Don't you think it would cause a revolution in English Canada

The province of Québec is French. Officially, it is even
unilingual, but most of it citizens have do be bilingual if they want
to have a job. Does it seem acceptable to you?

No idea, I don't remember the meaning of that word. But as far as I
remember it is not a good word, so I won't bother translating it.
